Not a show for visitors who speak only english
Suranjan_R, Mar 2023
Not able to understand Spanish we could not follow the lyrics of songs but enjoyed the melody and dances. Not worth going unless you understand Spanish. Also, due to traffic delays our driver could not show us the lights of Mexico City as promised on this tour which we had looked forward to.
Response from Host, Apr 2023
Dear Suranja. Thanks for your comments, The show is about our folklor and Mexican traditions and this are in Spanish. Have a nice day.
Wrong Address for Pick up
Joanne_H, Jun 2021
We went to the pick up spot listed on the ticket and no one was there. We looked all over and there was no one.
Response from Host, Jun 2021
Dear Joanne. We appreciate your time to give us your comments. It is important for us to know the reason you did not find our guide, Gabriela, since she waited for you at the meeting point on Av. De la Republica 154 until 7:40 p.m. For any inconvenience you may have, we gave you a 24hours number, despite the fact, we called to your phone several times, but we had no answer either. We will be glad to show you the evidence, any time you want.

GVRamesh_P, Apr 2017
I was looking for something to do on the first night I arrived in Mexico City and this tour fitted the bill perfectly. It was a chance to see the real Mexico for the first time, having been to Cancun before. After a prompt hotel pickup, the guide was a very nice lady who spoke no English, and since I speak no Spanish and I was the only non-Spanish person among six, we somehow managed to communicate with a combination of ostentation and Google translator. The square is lovely with lots of Mariachi singers, and the show was superb, an excellent introduction to Mexican culture, although again all in Spanish. Just sit back and enjoy the experience.

Kevin_E, Jan 2017
This was my favorite tour in Mexico City. Even though it took place at night we went to the square and saw all of the singers and finished the night off with a folklore play that was very powerful and depicted the history of Mexico. Even though the play was in a foreign language it was easy to follow as it was Mexico through time.

Melissa_M, Aug 2016
My only complaint about this tour is that I thought we would spend more time viewing monuments and buildings all lit up at night, including Zocalo square. We really only went to and saw the Garibaldi square, which we walked through. Having said that, the Garibaldi square is interesting. We arrived there way too early, though, and ended up spending a lot of time in the tequila shop below the Museo de Tequila y Mezcal. It was fascinating walking through the square and seeing /hearing all the different types of Mariachi bands. Then we went and sat at a restaurant and had drinks while we watched a traditional show. The show is worthwhile, the mariachis providing the music were talented, and there were 2 male and 1 female singer that each took turns singing different Mexican songs. There was a dance troupe of 3 men and 3 women that started out doing a dance that appeared to be aztec in nature. They came out in different traditional costumes and did different types of dances 3 times throughout the evening. They were great to watch. There was even a cowboy that came out and did rope tricks! The cock fight was part of this show, and was not bloody and did not end in death, but was symbolic and very well done.

Maria, Nov 2014
Not as expected at all!! I felt at a Tourist Trap! The mariachis at the plaza were much better than the ones in the restaurant! The drink tasted really bad. I do not recommend this tour at all! Nevertheless, the guide was very gentle and attentive.
Great way to spend the night out...
irina, May 2014
Great way to spend the night out! fantastic mariachi shows. Too bad we left earlier than supposed to at 11 pm instead of midnight. Super night!

Nevione C, Nov 2013
Good guide. Viewing statues in dark was a i bit pointless.Didnt have English guide as expected

Hutch, Sep 2012
Overall positive feeling about this tour, and glad we did it. Garibaldi plaza is fun, but it is good to be in a group as you don't want to face 1000 mariachis and their drunken following alone. The show was simply hokey but still fun. My only complaint would be that once the show was over, we were put in the van and taken home. My suggestion would be to allow everybody another 30 minutes to drink/talk/socialize before going home. Guide was a likable energetic guy. Positive experience - glad we did it.

Claudia M, Aug 2012
The show was awesome! Music was great and food was okay. Felt a little rushed though, plus be careful in the restaurant the waiter added 300 more pesos to our bill but, we caught it!

It was a wonderful night, lot of music and dancing, I enjoyed the show.
Too expensive for what you get...
Ricardo G, Mar 2011
Too expensive for what you get, future travelers should just take a taxi from the Hotel and head to "Garibaldi de Noche" where the show takes places.

It was a good tour, but to short because it was thursday.

Adriana_V, Jan 2023
Nos fue muy mal con este tours, desde la hora de recogida fue toda una confusión, la mala actitud de la persona que iba a recogernos, la explicación sobre el recorrido no es lo que dice la página porque hace mención a una hora de entrada en Zócalo y Plaza Garibaldi, lo cual no es verdad porque según lo explicado el recorrido es únicamente panorámico, debido a que solo va el conductor y la zona es peligrosa; por todo lo anterior en el mismo momento de iniciar el tour, no lo tomos y nos comunicamos inmediatamente con Mexitours para exponer nuestra inconformidad y la respuesta de la señora que atendió la llamada es que para ellos ese es tours y para ellos el servicio fue prestado, la cual fue la misma respuesta que nos dieron por escrito cuando formalmente expusimos la situación presentada. En fin cómo siempre el que pierde es el usuario, perdimos nuestro dinero, la oportunidad de conocer lugares que son muy interesantes, nuestro tiempo y nadie responde.
Response from Host, Jan 2023
Estimada Adriana, Agradecemos su comentario. Lamentamos la confusión en el tour que compró. En nuestro descriptivo podrá encontrar que el tour de Garibaldi de noche; se hace un recorrido panorámico de la ciudad ya que por la noche la Catedral y el Palacio Nacional están cerrados. El recorrido consiste en una visita panorámica por el centro de la ciudad para apreciar la iluminación y así llegar a nuestro destino principal “Plaza Garibaldi” donde se da la explicación y ver el show en vivo de bailes típicos de México. Quedamos con la esperanza de poderle ofrecer nuestros servicios en su próxima visita a México.
We loved it. Our tour guy had so much knowledge. Garibaldi night was so much fun!!
